Biography

Charles Allen "Charlie" White Jr. (born October 24, 1987) is an American ice dancer. With partner Meryl Davis, he is the 2014 Olympic Champion, the 2010 Olympic silver medalist, a two-time (2011, 2013) World champion, five-time Grand Prix Final champion (2009–2013), three-time Four Continents champion (2009, 2011, 2013) and six-time U.S. national champion (2009–2014). They also won a bronze medal in the team event at the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Davis and White teamed up in 1997 and they are currently the longest-lasting dance team in the United States. They are the first American ice dancers to win the World title, as well as the first Americans to win the Olympic title. At the 2006 NHK Trophy, they became the first ice dancing team to receive level fours on all their elements.

Personal life

White was born in the Detroit suburb of Royal Oak, Michigan, the son of Jacqui and Charlie White Sr. He attended Roeper School in Birmingham, Michigan from nursery school through high school where he played violin in the school string quartet and was involved with the student government. White graduated in 2005. He later enrolled at the University of Michigan, studying political science. He formerly competed as an ice hockey player and helped his team to a state championship. He has asthma.

White lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He married ice dancer Tanith Belbin on April 25, 2015.

Career

Early career

White began skating at age five. He originally competed as both a single skater and an ice dancer. As a single skater, he won the bronze medal at the 2004 U.S. Championships on the Novice level, and competed internationally on the junior level. He quit skating singles following the 2005–06 season in order to focus on ice dancing.

He began ice dancing when he was seven at his coach's advice, who hoped it would smooth out White's skating. He was partnered with Meryl Davis in 1997, by Seth Chafetz. In 2009, Davis said: "Charlie and I grew up 10 minutes apart from each other. Our parents are best friends. We've grown together and know each other so well."

Ice dancing career

Post-competitive career

Davis and White continue to perform together in ice shows and White has also worked on television as an ice dancing commentator. In February 2017, they confirmed that they would not return to competition.
